Love scenes are arguably some of the most difficult scenes to write. How do you keep each scene from sounding the same? Where is the line between too real and too far into fantasy? Which words and euphemisms will work with your tone, and which will kill the mood? When should you show every camera angle? When should you fade to black?
There’s a lot to it, and a well-written love scene can make or break a story. No pressure, right?
